Germany: Merkel holds key talks with CDU/CSU partners on forming a new government

German Chancellor Angela Merkel along with leader of the Christian Social Union (CSU) Horst Seehofer and politicians from the Christian Democratic Union of Germany/CSU alliance held key talks on forming a new government, at the Konrad Adenauer Haus in Berlin on Sunday. The talks come amidst a dispute between coalition members following last month's Federal Election. Seehofer, who has been a... Еще strong critic of Merkel's refugee policy in the past, is threatening to pull out of any coalition unless Merkel agrees to a cap on the number of new refugee arrivals in Germany. This option is rejected by both the Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Greens, with whom Merkel hopes to form a 'Jamaica coalition' with. Merkel's CDU and her Bavarian allies are expected to reach an agreement on migration policy during the talks so that discussions with the FDP and the Greens over forming a coalition can proceed.
